Matera Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Matera overlooks a ravine separating it from the Murge hills in Puglia. This provincial capital stands in the heart of a region dissected by deeply eroded gorges – a desolate landscape with wide horizons. The modern town stands on a plateau overlooking the lower town, which is home to a network of footpaths and flights of steps. Among these lie the town’s famous cave dwellings, which are known as ""Sassi"" (stones) in Italian.
